1. All Dark Matter cannot be observed,
2. Some sections in the universe that cannot be observed,
/ Some sections of the universe is dark matter.
Here is a wonderful example of an argument consisting of two true premises, yet the conclusion cannot neither be deemed true nor false (for now). Let’s slow down for a second and first dissect the validity of the argument. lets consider ‘X’ Dark Matter, ‘Y’ Observation, and ‘Z’ The Universe. (You know the drill)
1. All X is Y
2. Some Z is Y
/ Some X is Z
With this, it can be determined that the form is indeed accurate, thus making the argument valid. On the other hand, concluding weather or not this argument is factually correct is a challenge due to the questionable existence of Dark matter.
To begin, how can we for sure understand something if we cannot even observe it our selves? Better yet, how can we deem the existence of a certain occupancy of space by finding nothing occupying a certain section of the cosmos? Considering these questions, is it not safe to claim that the conclusion is false, due to lack of evidence. Yet on the contrary, the little evidence that scientists have found are simply theories revolving around observation in vicinity and due to this so called dark matter/energy. The best part is, scientists have even began explaining the accelerated expansion of our universe along theories involving dark matter and dark energy, yet knowing almost nothing about it. Considering this half of the equation, our conclusion can seem true and factually correct, but in the end it comes down which belief one supports.
So what does this do for me and you? Well, if Dark matter is indeed proved to exist, then not only does that revolutionize the scientific community by proving that the universe is expanding, and even possibly taking huge leap in determining how the universe was created, but also due to this advancement, it would effect religious beliefs as well (Stating that god ‘may’ have not created the universe, etc.). However, the human race wont have to worry about that for what I believe will be a long time, because of course, how can we prove something we cannot neither see nor detect?
